Rovinj is a great place for a Croatian vacation because there are so many cool towns within driving distance. On our first day, Dad took us to Porec, where they have an old Roman coliseum and an aquarium housed in an 1815 Austrian fort. The following is a recount of our day in the beautiful sea-side town of Porec…
After our Roman experience, we headed to the aquarium which is a two-for-one deal, since it is housed in an old fort. The Austrian’s occupied this territory in the 19th century…(they seem like such NICE people to be taking over a whole territory like that, eh?!!)
But, the highlight of the aquarium is the rescued sea turtles. They bring them here for rehabilitation when they are found in fisherman’s nets…
Levisons, I am not lying… that was her name 🙂
But, let’s squeeze in ONE more historical sight, and that is….a prehistoric town which houses a CROATIAN CASTLE! The abandoned town of Dvigrad houses old ruins of a castle from the 14th century.
It is a “Night Bar!” (?????)
